A) 80 Degrees | B) 75 Degrees |

C) 60 Degrees | D) 105 Degrees |

Explanation:

Angle traced by hour hand in hrs = = 255

Angle traced by min hand in 30 min = = 180

Required angle = (255 - 180) =

A) 11 4/11 | B) 13 4/11 |

C) 15 4/11 | D) 16 4/11 |

Explanation:

At 3 o'clock, the minute hand is 15 min. spaces apart from the hour hand.

To be coincident, it must gain 15 min. spaces.55 min. are gained in 60 min.

15 min. are gained in

= (60/55 x 15)min

=16+4/11

The hands are coincident at 16 + 4/11 min past 3

A) 32 8/11 | B) 33 8/11 |

C) 34 8/11 | D) 35 8/11 |

Explanation:

55min spaces are covered in 60min

60 min. spaces are covered in (60/55 x 60) min= 65+5/11 min.

loss in 64min=(65+5/11)- 64 =16/11

Loss in 24 hrs (16/11 x 1/64 x 24 x 60) min= 32 8/11.

A) 48 min. past 12. | B) 46 min. past 12. |

C) 45 min. past 12. | D) 47 min. past 12. |

Explanation:

Time from 8 a.m. on a day to 1 p.m. on the following day = 29 hours.

24 hours 10 min. of this clock = 24 hours of the correct clock.

hrs of this clock = 24 hours of the correct clock.

29 hours of this clock = hrs of the correct clock

= 28 hrs 48 min of the correct clock.

Therefore, the correct time is 28 hrs 48 min. after 8 a.m.

This is 48 min. past 12.

A) 11pm | B) 12pm |

C) 1pm | D) 2pm |

Explanation:

Time from 5 am. on a day to 10 pm. on 4th day = 89 hours.

Now 23 hrs 44 min. of this clock = 24 hours of correct clock.

356/15 hrs of this clock = 24 hours of correct clock

89 hrs of this clock = (24 x 31556 x 89) hrs of correct clock.

= 90 hrs of correct clock.

So, the correct time is 11 p.m.
